and more!

Let's See What Others Are Saying...

Laney Smith's 'Lock Creek, One Years Time', was very annoying to me. I don't (didn't) read Romance Novels, because they are (were) too sappy. I was immediately drawn into this novel that I wanted to hate. Instead, I fell in love with the lead character, Anne Howard. She is like the 'girl next door', very sweet and innocent, but someone who would be a blast to hang out with. If this wasn't bad enough, Laney introduced the lead male character, Derrick Decker. At first, he struck me as every other male romance novel character. Too perfect. But then, Laney brings you inside of Derrick's world. His thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Soon I found myself wanting to be more like him. Laney Smith had no right to do this to me, I found myself anxious to continue reading a romance novel, for Pete's sake! Their courtship dance was so up and down. It was fun, embarrassing, funny, thrilling, exciting. It reminded me so much of my own courtship with my wife, of twenty-four years, that continues on to this day. She also is the 'girl next door'. This novel will test your every emotion and you will fall in love with the characters and this world that Laney Smith has created! I promised myself no more, but I couldn't resist the sequel, thanks a lot Laney!

Couldn't put it down

I downloaded this book last night before bed and ended up reading the entire book! It's an easy read with a good flow and I really enjoyed all of the characters. The author did a good job of engaging the reader and I cannot wait for the sequels.

Love, Love, Love this book. Very easy to become emotionally involved with the characters and visualize the story line. This book is very engaging, so don't start it unless you have several hours of free time. Once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down until you are done. Can't wait for the second one to come out.

A love story like no other. A page turner that you will never want to put down. You feel like you know the characters. Amazing read!

Wonderful romance. It's believable, the characters are warm and likeable, the romance and intimacy are well written, passionate without being smutty, detailed without being pornographic and done in a tasteful way. The gossip and small town thinking is also real and the sense of community shines through. I love Anne's insecurities and excitement which is tenable and believable.The whole book draws you in to a warm embrace and hugs you, making you forget the world whilst you lose yourself in Lock Creek.

I absolutely love this book! I didn't want to put it down when I started reading it and The Times I had to I was just thinking about what was going to happen next due to all the twist and turns.. I just started reading the second one and I'm excited to see what's next... Great job! :-) and if this helps I'm not a reader at all! I've read twilight and 50 shades is grey series sooooo that says a lot also.. (:

A realistic view of small town romance. The author has a way of pulling you into her world. Then she takes that world breathes life into it in the form of lovable neighbors, friends and families. You will soon find yourself looking for real estate ads for Lock Creek, and hoping Sheriff Decker is hiring.

This is a fabulous read. It pulls you in from the very beginning and you can't put it down. It's a realistic love story with a well developed plot. The characters are well developed and engaging.

Hooked on the Series!
BySo Calon July 8, 2014
I am loving this book series. In this fast pace world we live in, it's nice to escape to Lock Creek. The characters are real life type people that you feel like you know. Like the only reason you weren't with them is because you had other plans you couldn't get out of.

Great read By tf on December 2, 2014
